Spectrobe /spek tr%26otilde;b/ n. 1 fossilized creature awakened by the power of yelling, featuring three evolutionary stages and ready for a lifetime of battling servitude. 2 a bit like Pok%26eacute;mon. 3 but it%26rsquo;s not. 4 honest.
It%26rsquo;s impossible to describe monster-collecting titles without Pikachu and chums appearing and dancing a jig on your mental cogs - and it%26rsquo;s a smug jig at that, the jig of a self-satisfied franchise that knows it rules the gaming roost and refuses to evolve as a result of it. Well, along comes Spectrobes - ready to smack the jigging fool in the face with its own rhythm stick.
